sillier things. i was in california when austrian weightlifter got to be governor. i think that's a really good point. i think you're seeing them doing everything they can to make sure the president doesn't even try to nominate susan rice. that explains the president's anger on an even deeper level. they want john kerry in the senate because they want a chance to pick up another seat. they're ten votes behind the democrats in the senate now and i think it's the most logical explanation possible. but we want to know what you think at 1-866-55-press. john is calling us from vancouver, washington. john, are you. >> up at an ungodly hour. >> caller: after they took away the day after the election and put fox sports in place of our progressive -- >> john: can you believe it? i'm appalled. i've broadcast out of the seattle progressive talk station there when i've hosted "the stephanie miller show" and you would think that after a sweeping victory like that, it would be an indication there is an audience for progressive t
are hard at work on self-driving models. and three states, california, nevada and florida, have already made self-driving vehicles legal as long as the human's sitting in the driver's seat in case of a emergency. that's a good idea. meanwhile, these cars could lose worker productivity. the average commuter spends 250 hours a year behind the wheel. or they could come in handy after you've had a couple cocktails. self-driving trucks could transform the trucking industry. picture long lines of self-driving 18-wheelers traveling down the highway just a few inches apart, no drivers, no stops for gas or food, it could boost fuel efficiency as much as 20%. we're going to need to keep driving ourselves though for a while longer. experts say the driverless cars should be more common in another ten to 15 years when the costs come down. here's the question, how would you feel about riding in a car that drives itself? go to, post a comment on my blog. or go to our post on the "the situation room" facebook page. i don't know if i'd trust a car to drive itself. >> me either. i wo
